I am suffering from acne and pimples.What are the remedies ?

I am a 24 year old male. From my teen age itself, i suffered from acne and pimples . but, even now at this age, there are frequent acne breakouts, due to which scars are developed on some locations of my face . I try to keep my face hygenic and used neem capsules to treat this but for little benefit. I am really clueless why it is happening to me even after my teen age is passed when this phenomenon is normal due to hormonal imbalances. Currently, i am using a skin ailment called ERYTOP which is helping me a bit but not fully. Please advice in the matter. What treatment can be done? Also, i want to know whether eating two solid food groups like chapati and rice simultaneouly as part of one meal is bad for our health and skin?

Hello, Welcome to Healtcaremagic!
Acne or pimples is a very common problem. Contrary to common belief, diet has NO role in acne & you can take oily food or rice without any problem. Erytop cream is good but alone may not be sufficient.
Do the following:
1) Apply Erytop cream twice a day-- Morning & Evening
2) Apply Adaferin 0.1% (adapelene) gel-- at Night only
3) Use a simple soap (like lux/pears) for washing face
I hope in 2-3 weeks you will have better results.
Good luck.

hello ,

welcome to helathcare magic forum,

as you have tried all sort of treatment for the acne and scar , you must worry more for the acne as till now u do get them often , n ill treating your new acne further causes you more scars becoz u are just treating the external factor then the root cause for your acne ,you should consult a Homoeoapth , who will just prescribe you homoeopathic medicnes rather than any external applications and as its very safe , effective and natural , within no time you will surely find good glowing skin .

Acne is caused by the increase in sebum release from the sebaceous glands of the skin, it usually affects teenagers and young adults. The condition is associated with infection and blockage of secretions from the skin (sebaceous) glands. You should use -Acne-n-Pimple cream , Clarina , & Purim. apply allovera daily on your face.

using erytop which is an allopathic medicine will only supress your acne problem but will never cure it, if you are looking for cure to this problem u should go for homeopathic treatment, and eating rice and chapati simultaneously has no bad effect on your skin or body.
drink lot of water,
avoid oily food
avoid being constipated
